Ingredients
  • ½ cup smooth almond butter (please don't substitute other nut butters)
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 ounces of white chocolate chips

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. Into your smaller bowl, add your almond butter, syrup, oil and extract. You can microwave for 1 minute or warm on the stovetop in a saucepan.
  3. You don't want the mixture hot yet warm and able to be whisked together to blend nicely.
  4. Next, into your food processor or blender, pulse your oats down to a flour (1/2 cup). Then add your in tact oats, starch, baking soda and salt.
  5. Pulse a few times to blend.
  6. Then add your wet ingredients and pulse several times.
  7. Then by hand mix in the white chocolate chips and popcorn.
  8. I felt the popcorn blended better using my hands to mix.
  9. Then pour the batter out into a 8x8 glass pan.
  10. Press firmly into you pan.
  11. Bake 24 minutes or until the edges are golden.
  12. Remove and let it cool for 10 minutes out on the counter and then I refrigerated for about 30 minutes.
  13. Cut once cooled.
  14. Enjoy.
